    Is it because of the hot temperatures? 36°C (97°F) today.
    On Ionity chargers the charge rate is better, so it's obviously supercharger fault.

    Hehe, it felt like many more in my head. I also count 11 through supercharge.info, but many constructions are underway :cool:

    Have you experienced slow V2 chargers?
